Air conditioning has a huge potential for efficiency improvements
Air conditioning is one of the largest energy consumers in the residential and industrial sectors. Thousands of air conditioners put high demands on our electricity networks. On a smaller scale, air conditioning probably accounts for a significant part of your energy bill.
Many existing air conditioners use old and quite inefficient technology. Although improved technology has become available in more expensive systems (e.g. inverter technology), the payback time of these systems is still very long and most of this technology is not suitable as an easy and economical aftermarket fit for existing systems.
In the light of today's energy problems, global warming and since older and not so advanced aircon systems will be in use for many more years in large numbers, we have analysed various existing energy saving techniques for air conditioning systems and reviewed plenty of earlier research. The conclusion was that detecting the system's efficiency and switching the compressor accordingly is probably the only effective, pragmatic and economical measure to achieve a better energy efficiency. There is no "free lunch" with any retrofit, but these savings come at no or only very small decreases in cooling comfort.
Upgrade your unit
Instead of investing a lot of money into an expensive new system, there is an easy and affordable way to improve the energy efficiency of your existing unit: Upgrade it with an AIRCOSAVER and you could cut your Air Conditioning cost by as much as 30%.
